    The 2.16GHz C2D macbook (mid 2007 release) has a max ram capacity of 3.3GB RAM. But apple advise on only putting in a total of 2GB.

    Would there be any problems associated with putting 4GB in?
    I know I wouldn't have access to the remaining 0.7GB, but is there any other things that could happen/have happened for people who've tried this?

    I think it is a better option for me to buy 4GB because if I upgrade my mac in the near future I'll have 4gigs to play with.

    cheers, b.

    I put 4GB in my 2.5 MBP and it's never been used to it's full potential.

    I'm running Safari, Mail, iCal, iTunes (playing), iPhoto and Photoshop CS and there's still nearly 2GB free - so I wonder if 4GB is just too much for normal usage anyway?!

    Just a comment.

    Never read about anyone having a problem with doing this.

    There are quite a lot of threads about this (e.g. why did Apple only advise 2GB) - but quite a while ago.

    But I really wouldn't worry about it.
